For Rhea & Colin, trying new things and taking on new adventures together was as effortless as their growing love. So when the time came to celebrate their wedding this May at the Wedgwood Wedding & Banquet Center at The Golf Club of California in Fallbrook, CA, they were more than ready to take on what would be the greatest adventure of their lives together so far: becoming husband and wife. We first met Rhea & Colin last fall for their engagement session photoshoot in Santa Monica, CA, and since then, their love has grown and grown in preparation for this amazing day. From the moment they first met in 2010 at the Old Town Pasadena Restaurant Week, they knew their journey would lead them to this eventful milestone. With rolling evergreen hills of grass and trees surrounding the picturesque countryside ceremony, friends, family and loved ones gathered together to share in the blissful love and unity surrounding the happy couple. As they said their vows and locked away a bottle of wine that would be reopened a year later to symbolize their first year spent together, laughter, tears of joy and smiling faces welcomed Rhea and Colin into married life. As the reception began, guests were welcomed with lively music, personalized table cards and a bottled favor as a token of thanks from the newlyweds. It was a pleasure working with Rhea & Colin again in capturing these cherished wedding day moments and thank you to the incredible Wedgewood Wedding & Banquet Center for setting the stage for this beautiful day.

What was the most memorable moment of your day?
Rhea: Walking down the aisle nervously and facing Colin who seemed calm and collected. He totally calmed me down.
Colin: Turning around to see Rhea for the first time during our first look. She looked beautiful.
Any advice for future bride/grooms?
Rhea: Don’t get caught up in all the details. Realize you can’t control everything and try your best to enjoy everyone’s company. Also, make sure to eat something before the ceremony. You will likely have little time to eat the rest of the night!
Colin: Don’t over think it! Try to stay calm. One shot of scotch before the ceremony works wonders!
Funniest memory from your wedding day?
Rhea: My dad’s speech was priceless.
Colin: Rhea’s crazy uncle getting down on the dance floor.
If you could do it all over, would you change anything?
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
